Selected by the Green Bay Packers in the 11th round of the 1963 NFL Draft, Marv Fleming played seven seasons (1963-69) in a Packers uniform. Appearing in 95 games, the tight end was a tremendous blocker and a key component of the Packers’ vaunted power sweep. Fleming recorded 109 receptions for 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns during his Packers career. A key player for the Packers’ three straight championship teams (1965-67), Fleming was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2010.
Selected by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 1959 NFL Draft, wide receiver Boyd Dowler played 11 years (1959-69) for the club. He was a two-time Pro Bowler and five-time NFL Champion, known for making his mark in Super Bowl II when he hauled in a 62-yard touchdown catch that helped the Packers beat the Oakland Raiders, 33-14. Dowler spent seven of his 11 seasons with the Packers leading the team in receptions, and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1978.
